GUEST,Don Wise Bad experiences at gigs (110* d) RE: Bad experiences at gigs 16 Jul 12


Taking up the dead instrument option...............

We played for the saturday evening ceilidh at a Barnsley Festival years and years ago. The gig was great- most,if not all, of Silly Wizard insisted on sitting in with us so the collective sound must have been something to hear.
    However...after the gig we decided we'd leave the gear on the stage since we'd all be there again on the following day. The caretaker turned off the lighting in the hall and on the stage and prepared to lock up. At this point, a Silly Wizard realised he'd left his smokes or whatever on the stage. So,with only the emergency lighting from the exit signs to guide him, he headed across the stage to where he'd been sitting. Unfortunately, on the way he trod on my guitar and broke the neck at the nut..........So the next day I unwittingly pulled a broken guitar out of it's soft case, which rather scuppered whatever I'd been intending to do.
    Somebody, whose name I can't remember,from Kiveton Park Folk Club glued it back together. I don't what he put in his glue but 40 years later I'm still playing that guitar!
